Very marginal performance  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have owned the Buddipole for 4 years. It can be a decent antenna but is very difficult to tune. Yes, I have followed the directions and use and MFJ259 analyzer when setting the Buddipole up. I have found that the antenna is very sensitive to its surroundings. I can tune the antenna to 2:1 SWR or less and the minute I raise the antenna the settings change. Then down it comes and start to adjust from there. I have the 16'mast. The antenna is easy to transport and takes up little room but just does not live up to its reputation. Mine sits at home most of the time. 
Product is in production.
